30" Tires on stock wheels


Recommended Posts

I know some of you have put 31" tires on and have had to do some fender well modifications. Wondering if I go to a 30"X10X14 on stock wheels if I will have to do any fender well mods up front. Hoping to be able to just use stock wheels mount the tires and have no issues with it rubbing on the well. I know 28" tires will be fine but hoping to maybe get that extra 1 inch of ride height with a 30". I have a T-4 so I high center at times.

I have same tires on black ss wheels the front is good I think (have modded fenders) no rubing but you will break the back fenders if you bottom out. Take them off and move them up on top of horizontal pipe right above them and remount and they will be good

2scoops has these tires. http://www.superatv....l-P963C709.aspx

They also offer a 28.5

My only warning is that these tires are much heavier than stock, but any 6 ply 30" ATV tire will be. I believe the 30x10x14 were 10lbs heavier a piece per tire than the stock, and the 30x12x14 were 15lbs heavier. That is a siginificant difference mainly due to the stock tires being made of paper mache and recycled road tar. By the time I changed them out the stock tires had more tire plugs and slime in them than air. I added Silverbullets fuel controller and it offset any powerloss and them some.

The benefits:

I can run them at low ATV pressures 5-10psi. This will impove your offroad ride alot. I think the stock tires call for around 30 psi???

I haven't had a flat yet (desert & mountain trail riding)

Traction is awesome in all areas.

The 30" size allows me to roll over much bigger rocks & bumps with ease. This helps me maintain my momentum which is a huge benefit with at stick shift.

The ground clearance with 30" tires is much better.

The price was good.

Most importantly--they look badass

The cons:

They don't balance worth a damn. I had a little steering wheel shimmy before I added the powersteering kit (now there is none).

They wear quickly, but that is inherent of an ATV tire. I think these may wear slightly quicker because the rubber is pretty soft. BUT this is why they stick to the rocks so well.

Off the line acceleration is a slightly slower, but top speed is higher.

I went with the Vision 15" rims with 30 inch BF Goodrich tires. I just got back today from the Baja 250 and the tires made a big difference for me. Since I have the T-4 also the extra lift is great. I did also add a better fuel pump. I was flying over pieces of the course today having a blast. Now more suspension here I come.

      Hello, All!  I've decided to replace the traction batteries in my 2018 Sector E1 with a 48V Lithium set. They may be expensive, but I figure the Discovery Dry Cell are, too. I am not looking for the max driving range, as I have never received near the brochured range to begin with, but a good mix of charge/ get work done/ charge is what I am expecting.
      I have settled on the 48V EAGL kit from bigbattery dot com. Each battery pack provides 30Ah. The kit ships with a charger, as well. The packs would be physically connected in parallel (using a busbar) to one another, maintaining the 48V voltage, but together would be able to provide the amp draw the buggy pulls when going up hill or towing a rake (rated 320 max continuous Amps). This is in comparison to the serial connection the eight 6V lead batteries. Each of the EAGL batteries looks to have its own BMS; am I correct in thinking I will have to use their included charger rather than (simply) changing the onboard charger to lithium mode? The chemistry of the pack is LiFe PO4, for what it's worth.  I haven't torn anything apart yet (to diagram), so  I am not sure how the dash will interpret the AMP draw, but the kit I am looking at includes a dash mounted charge indicator.
      If anyone has completed a similar conversion, do you have any tips? Specifically, how did you remove the original batteries, and how did you secure the new ones? I am guessing that almost any change from the stock batteries would involve at least some modifications. Any tips would be appreciated, especially things I may have failed to consider. Thanks!

      When researching the Tracker, I was interested in the 800SX LE. The original sales literature indicated that the LE came with 27x9x14 and 27x11x14 tires. When I went to pick up my Tracker, it had 26” tires on it. I called Tracker before paying for the Tracker and was told they had supply issues and could not get 27” tires. I’m curious to know if anyone has taken delivery of an LE with 27” tires in stalled? I just recently installed 27” tires and am happy with the added ground clearance and beefy look the machine has taken on!

      I am looking for the front brush guard that was made by Off Road Body Armor.
      They stopped making it to fit my 2023 Kymco 450i..
      So if anyone knows where one is I would like to buy it.
      Thanks Gary

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?

      Spent today at a Honda dealership looking at their 520 side by side, then on the way home past our Lowes noticed they had several new UTVs on site, so we U-turned and ducked in there. We were impressed that all that came for $9,999 metal whole length skid plate, nice sized bed, roof, windshield, side mirrors, winch, upgrade looking tires… all of which would have added thousands of dollars to an already expensive Honda 520. Now Honda does have a great reputation from my trusted UTV experienced buddy, so it has that going for it.
